Science: Forces and Magnets, Plants.

What are forces? How do they work? This half term we will be doing experiments to learn more about forces and magnets. We will be adding our findings, experiment results and photos to this page. If you learn anything new outside of the classroom you can post it to this page. Let the learning begin!

We looked at the different forces that can act on objects and experimented with practically demonstrating them.

Experiment 2: Investigating the different strengths of magnets.

We predicted how many paper clips the different size magnets would pick up.

Learning: To understand how magnets work.

Success: I can make observations about magnets.

I can explain how magnets work using scientific vocabulary.

I can draw diagrams to show how magnets react to each other.

Today we were looking at the parts of a plant. We discussed what we already knew about them, then looked at some different varieties from our school garden and labelled them up.

We have changed the environments of 3 plants  in the following ways:

A. No air.

B. No water.

C. No light.

D. Given water, light, nutrients.

What do you think is going to happen to each of the plant?






Here are the write ups we did for our Science experiment into water transportation in plants. We put wilting Celery into beakers with food colouring and predicted what would happen. The children then used annotated diagrams to explain the process and results.

    I liked planting the plants.💖💞💘💕🎀💗💓💅👛💇💆🙋💁💁🙅🙆👰👛👑👗💍💎💄🌂💛💙💜❤️💔💖🏩💒

    d=left in sun for to long and he has dried up.🌱🌷🌼🍁🌲🌸💐🍂🌳🌹🌾🍃🌴🌺🌿🍄🌵🌻🍀🌰


  3. Amelie Georgia S

    C= No light and gone all floppy .🌵🌹🌱🌷🌼🍁🍂🍃🍄🌰🍀🌿🌾💐🌼🌷🌸🌹🌺🌻🌵🌳🌴🌱


  4. Phoenix

    B= bill is doing the worst because he is got no water and if plants don’t have water they will get dehydrated and if they get dehydrated they will die.


  5. Cody and Leo

    C.if it gets no light it will the levels will go down and it lokes like the levels will go yellow and brown.


  6. Woody and Kieran

    David got everything but he is not looking well. Bill gets no water and he is looking droopy. Andy gets no air but he looks good. Celt gets no light but celt don’t look well.


  7. Torri and Taylor

    David has dried up Leefs look after him!😀
    Celt has dropped his stems is lening down.😪😥
    Andy is the best one because his stem is up.😀
    Billy is starting to lean but not fully.😧


  8. Elijah and Conner

    It’s not fare that David hass ethretching but Andy has no air and Bill has no water and lassed- but not least Celt has no light at all.


  9. Georgia and Caitlin

    D.=Daved leaves are Yellow/Brown and he get’s every thing.=Andy is fine and the cage is like pretending him and he’s got friends. C.=Celt is a bit floppy.B.=Bill is a bit brown.😉😀


  10. Stella Callum And Julia

    Plant d that gets everything is looking the worst because he has yellow and green leaves that are crunchy. He was left too close to the window and the sun burnt him.
    Plant C. All its stems are going down and he is drying up.
    Plant A: He still has water and looks healthy we think he is running out of air.
    Plant B: he has no water, his stems are yellow and bent. He looks tired.


  11. Matt and harry

    Andy has no air but he is not died yet and Andy doesn’t look Heathy . David has everything included water air light and doesn’t look great . Bill gets every thing . The Celt has no light but doing good and locks fine.


  12. Hannah and Frankie

    Andy gets no air . He is looking the healthiest even though he is in a bag and has no air.
    Bill gets no water . The stems have gone droopy.
    The Celt gets no light . He is a bit droopy but okay.
    David gets everything . David was left too close to the window and he didn’t receive water over the long weekend so he is a bit wilted. He is a yellow and brown colour.
